Dynamika hydroným v severnej časti povodia Malého Dunaja
The dynamics of hydronyms in the northern part of Malý Dunaj river basin
The study is based on 10 years of hydronomastic research of the Malý Dunaj river basin. This area is characterized by an uncompact territory, multinational influences (Bavarian, Hungarian and Croatian ethnicities) and considerable anthropogenic interference in the hydrographic situation of the river basin, that are influencing the form or existence of hydronyms. The contribution focuses on the dynamics of hydronyms in the studied river basin, on the relationship between the standardized and the living form of water names, on the relationship between the first mention and the possible living (non-standardized) form, and on the causes of the disappearance of hydronyms. It also refers to the dating of the first known references of the hydronyms and points to the sources of these data.
